Temperature Probe Assemblies
Replace Silicone in a High-End Patient Monitoring Probe Assembly
A major medical OEM was looking for a supplier who could help reduce the unit cost for probe assemblies used in temperature monitoring. The OEM wanted to lengthen the product’s life as well as replace the proven silicon design that was used for years.
Minnesota Wire worked with the customer to redesign a customized temperature probe assembly while meeting challenging cost and product life requirements.
Thermo-plastic replaced silicone for cost and longevity
Exceptional quality: advanced materials autoclavable 100 times at 134 degrees Centigrade—well beyond the U.S. temperature standard
